Google "Both hardware- and software-wise, [Chromebooks] are nothing special: You can download Chrome OS's open source brother, Chromium OS, for free -- and at around $400 for a Chromebook, you would certainly expect some better hardware than what Samsung and Acer are offering. In fact, for around $300 you can get a cheaper and more powerful netbook with Windows 7 pre-installed -- and it only takes about 30 minutes to wipe Windows and install Chrome OS yourself."

Sometimes I'm having trouble voting up an article.
This one for instance I click on the thumbs up icon and it does not work. Other times it does however..

Making your own Chromebook will be great.

Do anyone know if a laptop with numeric keypad will work with Chromebook because the key layouts of the chromebooks I saw are a bit different. Some business/clerical people for example specifically prefer laptops with numeric keypads.
Probably then an external USB keypad is also
